At Falls Road Animal Hospital, we provide routine preventive and wellness care for your bird or other exotic pet, no referral needed. Exotic pets can also be seen for behavioral and medical concerns.
Cases that are referred to us are transferred back to your regular veterinarian as soon as possible. After-hours emergency services are also available with or without a referral.
